The company has now announced that two of the L Series III — the L40 and the L70 — will come to Australia, with the L70 launching in May and the L40 following in June.

No pricing details are available, but the series is aimed at the entry-level to mid-tier market and we'd anticipate that pricing follows accordingly.

The spec sheet for both devices looks impressively solid, with Android 4.4 a key selling point. Both have a dual core 1.2GHz processor, with the L40 sporting a 3.5-inch screen and the L70 a 4.5-inch screen. Neither device works on 4G networks.

LG has done well out of the previous generations of L Series and the lower-end market. In fact, the company attributes its current status as the number three top smartphone manufacturer to the success of the L Series.

Following the L70 and L40 launches, further L Series III models are slated for Australia in the third quarter of 2014.
